This is a 3 season service provided by DPW, which starts in April. All leaves, weeds and lawn clippings should be placed in biodegradable bags and placed at the curb for pick up on Mondays.

They also will pick up Christmas Trees, if left at the curb on the first two Mondays of the New Year. Be sure to check the calendar for the exact dates.
